    HONOLULU — Hawaii emergency officials said an alert of a ballistic missile threat is a false alarm.

    The alert stated there was a threat ‘‘inbound to Hawaii’’ and for residents to seek shelter and that ‘‘this is not a drill.’’

    The alert caused a panic when it went to people’s cellphones Saturday morning but, shortly after, authorities said it was a mistake.

    I wonder how that happened.

    Same folks who certified Obama's birth certificate. Makes perfect sense.

      That is a system test gone wrong probably.

      Pushed the wrong button and of course the buttons are close together, and I bet does not have a cover to prevent mistakes.

      Shortly after officials said it was a false alarm? How about 50 minutes after. That ain't shortly IMO.

        Actually, yes, just caught a snippet. Fox News Sunday had a female lib talking head who lambasted Trump and called for REAL face to face discussions between Kim Jung Ill and the President.

        It could be a set up being a snowflake utopia out there, including that lunatic of a Federal Judge.
